Idea 5: Furniture

Positioning of the bed is important in any room because the rest of your furniture will be based around it. Find the ideal spot for placing the bed and then arrange smaller furniture.

If you like to watch TV in bed, you want to opt for a layout that allows you to do exactly that. You also need to think about walkways as you don’t want the bed to block your path to the door. That could be annoying. Also, make sure the size of your new or used furniture is proportionate to the room or else your bedroom will look overcrowded.

Idea 6: Duvets and Bed skirts

The focal point of most bedrooms is the bed. You can have the most impact with a carefully chosen duvet cover. You can also find bed skirts in a variety of textures, fabrics and colors and they give any bed a wonderful finishing touch.

Idea 7: Textured Rugs

Using textured rugs is another good idea for enhancing your bedroom décor. You can place them anywhere on the floor that appeals to you, or even use the patterned and colorful rugs on the wall like headboards. They give a bold touch and can come in really handy as decoration. The best part is that they are not very expensive and you can find a wide assortment of textures, colors and patterns.

Idea 8: Fake Canopy

Have you ever dreamed about having a canopy over your bed? Most people just can’t help but imagine how that would look like. If you cannot have the real thing, why not make a fake canopy with colorful sheer fabric? This bold move brings energy into a room and also makes a cozy place when you wish to snuggle in at night.
